FREEing is going to release the Face lift Kokonoe Rin ( 九重りん ) Gym Uniform ver. ( 体操服ver. ) 1/4 PVC figure from the manga/anime “Kodomo no Jikan” ( こどものじかん ). Will be release in January 2009. Around 190mm tall, 11,800 yen.

Wow! Good Job FREEing! You did the right thing!!!! Remembered the super ugly Kokonoe that I posted in Oct last year? Now FREEing decided to give her a face life before put her on the shelf this month. This is really last minute. They announced it last Friday but I just find it out today. Now we’re talking! This Kokonoe is super moe! I really want to bring her home!!! Too bad she is really expensive and really big.

For those who didn’t pre-order her last year, you really should reconsider it now. =D

——Description from Manufacturer——

She may be small… but this a still a huge figure!

With the new OVA’s release date decided, the Kodomo no Jikan anime stays ever popular. Now a new figure of the elementary school heroine Rin Kokonoe is here – and this time she’s in her gym uniform.

She has been sculpted as an incredible 1/4 scale figure, with her uniform and bloomers made entirely from cloth for a truly realistic recreation. She sits and gazes ahead in her uniform, with a slightly erotic appeal that you would never expect from an elementary student. The stand looks as if it is a gymnastics mat, adding even more feeling of the figure.
